Content Review: Harry Potter 1-7 by J.K. Rowling


by J.K Rowling                                                                                                      Review by Andria

Intended audience:  all ages                            Age of main character:  11-17

I'm reviewing all these books together because if you read one, you'll read them all.  AND I'm assuming that if you're looking this up, that you don't have a problem with the whole wizardry thing, this book is about a wizard.  If you have questions about Harry Potter and faith, I suggest reading Looking for God in Harry Potter by John Granger.

Rescued from the outrageous neglect of his aunt and uncle, a young boy with a great destiny proves his worth while attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.







Sexual Content:

-There is no sexual content in any of the books.

-In the 5th-7th book there is some kissing, or snogging, as they like to call it.  In the 6th book, there is quite a lot of kissing going on between Ron and Lavender Brown.


Language:

Damn, Hell, God and Bloody Hell are used a couple of times in each book.  
In the last book: 
    1 "A" word
    1 "B" word
    3 "effing" (I'm not abbreviating, they actually say "effing")


Did I like these books?

YES, YES, A THOUSAND TIMES YES!!!  These are by far the best books I have ever read.  This may seem strange, since they are technically children's books, but I think I could read them every day for the rest of my life and never get tired of them.  Listening to them on audio book is especially awesome because Jim Dale (the reader) is phenomenal!  I have a 6 year old, 8 year old, and 14 year old and we all LOVE to listen to the books together in the car, and my 57 year old dad is the one who got us hooked.  Great read for all ages!!!
